Kevin Wee - Custom-Shape Buttons in a Dashboard: Their Design, Functions, & Use Cases

Florida Tableau User Group

Oct 18, 2023, 4:00 – 5:00 PM


About this event

Buttons on a dashboard--when designed well--help users analyze the presented charts and data. However, it can be challenging to create buttons that are functional, user-friendly, and professional-looking. In the workshop, you will learn how to collect custom shapes from online free icon libraries and use the shapes in button making. You will also learn how to create buttons that enable users to disclose helpful information, reveal filters and parameters, change the chart designs, and many more.

Kevin has a PhD in scientific visualization, in which he developed a Tableau-based visual analytics methodology for digital media evaluation. He published vizzes with innovative designs on his Tableau Public profile. He is a Tableau Featured Author and was nominated for the 2022 "WTF, I Never Knew Tableau Could Do That" award. Kevin loves giving back to the DataFam community, from which he has greatly benefited. Kevin has presented in TUGs, participated in community projects (e.g., B2VB, MakeoverMonday, RWFD), and created a Viz of the Day. Kevin is a Senior BI Analyst at Discover Financial Services, where he develops data tools for business analytics and provides Tableau training to the employees.
